SMTP Mail Routing Issues
Posted on 2006-07-13
We are having huge issues just now trying to route mail. We have two Gateway Servers which route incoming and outgoing mail via SMTP. We have a global domain document that points a certain domain name out to a specific SMTP server and we have a relay host specified in the Configuration document to send out via the internet.
Routing this way (via the direct connection SMTP connection document) works fine on one of the Gateway Servers but not the other. Whenever we try and force mail through Gateway02 it transfers successfully via the direct connection to the specified IP address, however ,whenever we try and force mail through Gateway01 it routes via the internet, not the direct connection and fails.
It would appear that Gateway01 isn't reading the connection document! We have tried to replace the address book with a known working replica, deleted the connection document and foreign SMTP document.
Can anyone help?
